The lids to these containers also served as dishes. The larger, plain version is said to have been found at Arretium (modern Arezzo, Italy). The smaller is decorated with a barbotine relief design, suggesting a slightly later date for production; it belongs to a type of sigillata known as Tardo-Padana Ware, made in the Po Valley.
